As spam and online threats continue to plague user inboxes, Internet and email providers will continue to aggressively take steps to protect their users by implementing the latest technologies and standards available. Email authentication is part of those standards. As there has been no general adoption of any one standard, email senders are encouraged to incorporate all authentication methods into their email infrastructures. By doing so it will not only show that their email messages are authentic, but will also show that they are accountable in their sending practices, and can thus gain more trust in the eyes of the email receiving community.
